Today was a bit of a blur with some shades of programming, outlines in email, textures of phone calls, and highlights of marketing all on a canvas of decent productivity. What a happy picture!add a comment

My absolute favorite morning routine:
Amy looks to Daddy as she reaches toward the cat and asking for approval says, “I be nice. I be gentle.”

Envy February 27, 2005 9:18 pmPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
Too reaching. Too contrived. If there is one thing I am not, it’s envious.
1) I’ve spent a bunch of mental energy of late remembering those people in high school that were more assertive and self-confident than myself in the realm of dating and pondering how bygone times might have been different.
2) Thinking about those folks that stayed the course, followed the rules, conformed to society, work 8-5, and have nice cars, spacious houses, lawn service to keep the elegant yards, weekly maid service to fend off the filth and other things that fall under Gluttony and Greed and further contribute to Wrath and Sloth.add a comment

Gluttony February 27, 2005 8:53 pmPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
I went to Earth Fare today (I suppose I need say no more) and splurged by allowing myself to eat some sushi and I wasn’t really hungry. Since Cathy had to eat low carb and low sugar today the trip to Earth Fare was done with good intentions yea Gluttony struck none-the-less.add a comment
Lust February 27, 2005 1:07 pmPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
Having sex is the high point of most women’s days, while commuting is the low point. And most women like being with their kids less than they admit…with 6 being the strongest and 0 the weakest women gave “intimate relations” a positive score of 5.10
A woman’s ability to reach orgasm is partly due to her genes and the relative importance of environmental factors versus genes seems to vary depending on whether a woman masturbates, has sexual intercourse or oral sex.
The researchers found that when women try to reach orgasm through masturbation about half (51%) of their chance of success depended on their genes. When they had penetrative sex, genes accounted for just 31% of their chance of success, and 37% when a women and her partner used other methods.
…may support the theory that orgasm plays a role in evolution such as to retain sperm
Note: This study was done with 3000 Australian female twins including genetically identical twins and non-identical twins. Somewhere out there is a very, very happy research assistant (tick that one off as Envy).
Orgasms activate parts of the brain responsible for euphoria and pleasure, but also emotion…orgasms are better if you’re in love. …we tend to have orgasms with the right side of our brain
Note: Does this make lefties better lovers?
“Drug companies should be including tests of orgasm function before marketing their drugs.”
Now there’s a Quality Assurance job that sounds fun!
For some people reaching orgasm can be a painful experience â€“ if they are the one per cent of the population who suffer from sexual headaches.
Too much sex gives you arthritis Uh. I’m at a loss for words.
Sex is good for your immune system as well as your ego…people who report having sex once or twice a week have elevated levels of an immune protein found in saliva which is the first line of defence against colds and flu
Skip the flu shot! Stay in bed!
Three recent studies on sex reveal that polygamy holds biological benefits and dominated human history so much that it is imprinted in our genes.
…researchers discovered that while more men than women are squeezed out of the gene pool, Y chromosome variations indicate that those men whose genes survived tended to travel and to have multiple female partners.
Sex: do we really need it? Cool picture.add a comment
Wrath February 27, 2005 11:24 amPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
In response to the dog’s mess this morning I roared with anger. I was mad at myself and my anger came out directed toward my wife. Wrath feeds wrath. The uncomfortable silences, the distance, the awkwardness that follow an injustice irrationally placed upon another stokes the fires within the angry person as that person becomes more incensed at himself for having slipped in the first place.
Five more sins to go. I think I’ve got Lust covered.add a comment
Sloth February 27, 2005 10:19 amPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
I slept in this morning and paid the price. The puppy is making great progress at moving to the outside for doing its business. This morning it couldn’t wait and hid its pee in the bathroom which goes under the cabinet and makes for a very difficult cleanup. Ironically as I slept I dreamed I was Brad Pitt in Meet Joe Black (amz) except I wasn’t Death I was the Devil but I was teaching people values and I had an obsession with eatting sugar (Men in Black?). It was humorous to reveal my identity to the preachers and other folk I encountered while I pointed out their sins.

Last night I dug out a bucket of un-opened mail circa 2001. Now, why not just toss the whole thing? Some of this mail still might have some relevance. But I did burn about half! The next pass will be far more discriminatory.
In other finds, I’ve been battling the sluggishness and memory problems of this computer..an Athlon 900mhz with 256 MB PC133 ram when suddenly I remembered a computer in the garage that I’ve been scavenging parts for various reasons. It had 256MB PC133 ram in it! So as of today at not cost I am upgraded to 512MB ram! I might just have to play some Pirates ( ) to see if it performs better!add a comment
Lost February 24, 2005 7:34 amPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
Certain in our house don’t last beyond one use. Neosporin in our house is a one use item. After its used on a single cut or scrape the tube disappears. My daughter and I did the hapless search this morning to treat her papercut. On a different note, it looks like everything can be bought on Amazon. I think I’ll try to start making more purchases there.
In other Lost, last night’s episode was fantastic. In the flash back scene where the Japanese man delivered the thank you and got the dog did anyone see Hurley getting out of a car on the television that the child was watching? I love how the flashbacks tie the characters together. I also find it intriguing that the two people with apparent special abilities both verbalized that they “like it here.” I wonder when the boys special talent is going to be revealed. The preview for next week’s show has me wanting to fast forward my life and get this week over with.
